Authentic Antique Estate Cameo Pin. 14K White Gold Filigree Frame. (Tested) 14K marked on clasp. Elegant right facing Lady Carved from a concave back Pink Shell Cameo and accented with Twenty Six (26) decorative rounded seed (pearl) beads in differing sizes.
Eight (8) beads on each side and Five (5) beads on the top and bottom are strung on wire to the framed white gold mounting. A twisted wire can be seen from the backside near the frame and again in between the seed beads. This gorgeous Pink Shell (Coral Coloration) Cameo has been preserved well over the decades but It does need to be cleaned by a professional who knows how to clean Shell carved cameos and pearl beads of any kind natural, cultured or faux to avoid damage.We found no cracks to the cameo in our inspection and we can see the full silhouette of the carved lady from the back of the brooch which we have tried to capture in a photo for you. Her carved hair, dress and bold flowers are exquisite in detail and elegant in form. After this cameo is cleaned a local jeweler should be able to add additional information on the seed (pearl) beads that adorn the filigree frame of this pin as to if the beads are cultured (lab created) pearls, lustered glass or dipped (coated) pearl beads. We do know the provenance of this piece but we do not have definitive information on the decorative (pearl) beads that adorn it. Please view the close up photos we have provided prior to your offer.
